ABOUT ALTO MONCAYO
Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a winery located in the Campo de Borja Denominación de Origen (DO, wine quality standard) area. It was founded in 2002 with the aim of making it a world reference for the highest quality Garnacha wines made from indigenous grape varieties. The bodega is located in the highest part of the town of Borja, about 500 meters above sea level. Due to the proximity of Mount Moncayo, the climate here is particularly cool and dry continental. The indigenous Garnacha grapes of Alto Moncayo, together with the microclimate to which they are exposed, the soil type, the orientation and the professional treatment, form the authentic indigenous terroir, an interaction that produces wines that are unique and distinctive in the world. The ancient Garnacha varieties are found on the foothills of the Glacis, the mountains of Ainzón, Fuendejalón and Tabuenca. These are very stony, with light additions of limestone, marl, dolomite, quartzite and slate. These are highly permeable soils that allow water to seep through and retain water in the deeper layers of clay. Read more in the Tab: Winery.
